TOPIC: CENTURION SHO'T KAL GIMEL, 1982

CENTURION SHOT 'AL GIMEL, 1982 03 Nov 2019 18:00 #13

Good choice should be a kool build. I totally agree with that time hack 1:50 Shot Kal is an excellent subject. I also really like the one sitting in a field of sunflowers. I think you should combine the two...now that would really be Kool!! :coolio

SO I am REALLY liking the tank you see at 1:50 in the attached video that I had earlier posted:



really makes me think, "what happened to that other half of the mine-roller?" And "Can I get a 'still' pic of that vehicle?" (maybe someone here can help?)



Bruce - you might go ask at Armorama if anyone has any photos of that particular tank. There are guys over there with amazing photo collections!

Mike


Skinny Mike - thanks for that info! I will do that very thing!!

So if you go with the Shot Kal(meaning "Whip" in Hebrew...that's kinda of kool) with the one mine roller you'll need a kit for that.....Say "Thank You Mr. Miniart" B)

Now you'll still need the mounting plate that sits on the front of the tank and as luck would have it legend productions makes one... :dance

The source to get one...Evilbay. That being said I have done business with this guy and he is excellent, though a bit pricey. BTW he also has a nice stowage set for the Sho't Kal.

And lastly here are a couple of shots I found while doing the research for this post...

Hey thanks man! I am very torn between the mine roller and the sunflowers. there are several markers of 1/35 sunflowers, who knew? They ain't cheap and that cost would be about da' same as the moneroller, so we will see

WHICH ONE??? 16 Nov 2019 17:04 #18

Ok so the part started today!!!!

So since this is going "all out", I am gonna do so by making this into a full blown vinette!

I am inspired by the pic of the tank in a field of sunflowers:

Plus I think I am going to add a Mine roller to the front. All in due time, of course! So got started and was quite surprised to see actual springs used in the suspension to make it articulate!

And here we are about 4 hours in. The multi=piece upper hull has a though fir, I would rate the build so far as 'hard', but it is still doable and the detail is really impressive, this being my first ever AFV kit

So that was it for Saturday, hope to get some more work in tomorrow!

If I buy them, I will spend about $100 on 56 plants...not happenin. I showed u the punches I intend to use, I’m estimating 100 plants , so that’s 200 main petals & a like number of leaves. Should keep me busy for a bit


It’s too bad the mine roller in the Meng kit is not the right type for the time period. My B-day is Wednesday do planning on ordering the correct item from Sprue Bro’s around then

Will b lookin to you for guidance on the groundwork, FYI

Don't forget the Legend Productions mounting plate as you'll need that as well.
